Mine is 44yrs/old. Our last home's septic made it 55yrs. I'm hoping to keep the streak going.

I live in an area with poor drainage... ledge close to the surface + bedrock outcrops. Neighbor spent 22K putting in a new engineered septic which involved adding top soil to the lot... That was over 10 years ago. My septic is over 60 years old.

Sewers came in this year and I gladly hooked up.

Our water is metered, so I've gone to high efficiency everything now. We pay for water and subsequently sewer. Separate charges. So the more water you use, the more of both you pay. Given the absolutely mental electricity prices we are already paying, I'm conserving anywhere I can.

Is that unusual for Canada? It's fairly common in the US.

Enjoy!

Our 6 year old Electrolux front-loader and electric dryer do a good job. Using high-quality detergent helps greatly. My water/sewer is cheap, but electricity is expensive. So using less electricity matters to me.

What I expensively had to learn was that front-loaders are very sensitive to the environment around them. Keeping a stable temperature and humidity really do help the large-capacity ones to live a long life. Unconditioned spaces and large-capacity front-loaders don't mix too well.

It is relatively new. We used to pay a static fee of around $35 for each service (I think it was actually $35 for water, $32 for sewer) so you could use however much you wanted and always paid the same. Electricity was flat-rate billed as well with it being 5.8 cents per KWh as recently as 2010. Since the Green Energy boondoggle, we're now on metered water, paying for every cubic meter. When I had a toilet that got stuck running, and I was travelling and didn't know (and my wife didn't know how to fix it or see it as an issue) our bill was close to $800.00. We've also moved to TOU billing for electricity with the cheapest tier at 8.8 cents per KWh with mid-peak at 12.2 and on-peak at 18. On top of that we pay delivery and of course tax. This will soon be compounded with a carbon tax, affecting both electricity and natural gas, propane, oil....etc.
